One of the great lights of Buddhism, Joseph Goldstein, in this 35 part series, explains the Satipatthana Sutta or the Discourse on the Establishments of Mindfulness. In this discourse, the Buddha explains systematically the ancient course of mental training that leads to unshakable liberation from the suffering caused by inner greed, hatred, and delusion about the nature of reality. Drawing on his 40 plus years of experience as a teacher and practitioner of meditation, Joseph Goldstein,...

By the Author: This story is intended to be both a partner to the novel âThe Pilgrim KÄmanÄ«ta,â written by Karl Gjellerup in 1906, and a tale that stands on its own. There is no need to have read the earlier book in order to make sense of this one, however, should you wish to go to the source from which many of the characters and scenes of this tale have sprung. This book was originally projected to be published entirely as a serial novel, appearing one chapter at a time on the first day...

Rude Awakenings is a...

From the Preface (by Ajahn Sucitto): This book evolved out of some talks I had given in the space of a few years, mostly at Cittaviveka Monastery. In these talks, I had been exploring the relevance of the Buddhaâs teachings on kamma to the practice of meditation. At first glance the two topics may not seem that closely related: kamma is a teaching on behaviour, and meditation is apparently about doing nothing, isnât it? Or we might have the idea that: âKamma is all about who I was in a...
